CAPE GIRARDEAU — The Rev. Terry Jones, who received national attention earlier this year when he burned the Quran, drew only a small crowd in a recent visit to Missouri.
The Southeast Missourian reported that just 15 people showed up Sunday night for a "Stand Up America Now" rally featuring Jones at a VFW post in Cape Girardeau. The meeting room was set up for 500.
Jones grew up in Cape Girardeau before eventually moving to Florida. He burned a copy of the Quran at his church in Gainesville, Fla.
Outside the rally in Cape Girardeau, five Southeast Missouri State students protested the appearance with signs such as "Freedom of religion means all religion."
